Default unbelieveable.....

i am sorry but i just found out that triumphs new thunderbird motorcycle
weighs 801.0 lbs wet.

i think i am going to throw up! my k bike comes in solidly between 500-600. i consider it heavy..but it's german and i am sure the weight was required to add the features.

my yamaha TDM weighs in at 485lbs wet. i considered it a heavy weight.

hell my honda cbx 1982 weighed right at 600....

IS THIS PROGRESS?

GOD I LOVE RIDING MY 360 lb SINGLE CYLINDER SR500...WHEN the weight of a motorcycle gets over 500 lbs the "sporting " aspects just get lost. when they get over 600 there is strong argument about what does or does not constitute a motorcycle!!

at more than 1/2 ton with rider...? not me baby!!!

heck even the first honda gold wings did not weigh that!!!! makes my 1979 kaw kz1300 look svelte at 700 lbs!!!!

i would go so far as to suggest that the new thunderbird "is not a triumph "at all but a british interpretation of an american concept!

what say you?
